Connectors for IBM Director 5.20

Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are getting false alerts on temperature sensors on an xSeries server running Linux.

What does it fix?

The IBM Director Agent sometimes returns a temperature threshold of zero degrees. This would cause the thresholds to be incorrectly set. Hardware Sentry KM for PATROL will ignore temperature thresholds of zero.

How to install the patch?

Copy the following files to the %PATROL_HOME%/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the managed server:

  • MS_HW_Director52Linux.hdf
Re-initialize Hardware Sentry for the patch to take effect.

Nothing needs to be installed on Console systems.
